The American Eagle



He flies high in the sky, so proud and free,
Loving his homeland, which he'll never flee,

His head's so bright against the light blue skies,
A sparkle shines in his deep, dark eyes,

His wings are wide as he soars through the air,
As if he's watching over America from way up there,

Of course, I speak of the bird that's so majestic and regal,
Our beautiful National symbol, the beloved American Eagle.
